Big Horn Ranch's what I do!

More specifically, I create, grow, and manage healthy grass land ecosystems where each specie of livestock fills it niche as nature intended. The result is a high quality meat which is good for the Earth, good for the animal, and good for you!  Sunshine, fresh air, pure mountain spring water filtered by our glaciated soils, and animals doing what they were designed by nature to do.

The cattle and sheep graze, the chickens and turkeys gobble clover and choke down meaty grasshoppers. In the Fall the pigs root for acorns in the woodlot and through the compost building in the winter.  The goats browse the nutritious weeds that nobody else has a taste for.

Organic, Naturally Grown, Grass Fed, Non GMO, Sustainably Grown, Free Range, Cage Free, Humanely Raised... these are all potential arbitrary terms that any large company can label their products through third party government sanctioned inspectors, legal loopholes and corporate sideways talk.  Over commercialization of these claims has muddied the consumers faith in labels, so here is my deal for you... let's build a relationship not on a flashy multicolored label, but rather on trust. Trust that if I sell you a product, it was grown the way an animal should be according to nature's design. It was grown with my expert attention to environmental stewardship. Take a look at the slideshow below...livestock happily basking in the sunshine and grazing grass...can you get any more "Humane" or "organic than that?!

GOT GRASS? Grass fed beef isn't about cows on a beat up pasture licking dust between the grass clumps....IT IS ABOUT every time the cow takes a bite...she cannot fit the entire swath in her mouth...super nutritious grasses, clovers and weeds. Daily weight gains EVERY SINGLE DAY.
